Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I'm assuming that the engine cranks but doesn't start. There are many things that can cause a no start condition and it's going to take some testing to determine what the problem is.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see if the engine controller will communicate, and if it does to see what fault codes are set. Do you have a scan tool?
